    Re: duck dynasty bees

    I saw it. Yes, bees will build out like that. I couldn't tell you how they come to that conclusion though ; )

    In the southern US they are able to make it through winter potentially.

    What if you take the hives and then find out they thought they increased the value of the property?

  4. Re: what is the approximate proportions of "honey butter"? (honey to butter)

    I've not made it, but did a little research for you. I did see a recipe with a 1:1 ratio, meaning mix evenly. I also saw one that called for 3/4 cup butter to 1/4 cup honey.

    Re: Fixing crooked comb

    I was just thinking about your issue again. IF, you are only running a single deep, you will need a completely drawn out box to put underneath. If you only have wax foundation, it will not work, as...

    Re: Fixing crooked comb

    I would keep the brood boxes together if at all possible. If you must, then run a queen excluder above and below the "messed up comb box" and have the honey supers on top.

    For frames: What I use...

    Re: Fixing crooked comb

    It is okay to leave well enough alone, but the purpose of removable frames is so you can remove one at a time for inspection. If you cannot do that, then I would slowly work towards that goal. I...
  8. Re: What to tell about bees when making a presentation to the public

    It depends on how long the presentation is... Might only have time to hit the high points. You don't want to go to deep and not cover the info wide enough.

    Also, from what aspect will this be...

    Re: Fixing crooked comb

    If it is a 10 frame box, run 10 frames until all are drawn out(NO spacing), and THEN start spacing. Same goes for the 8 frames. Run the max until all frames are drawn.

    Re: Fixing crooked comb

    Once it is built crooked, it stays that way. If you take a piece and try to bend it, it will either stretch or cave the dimensions of the cells.

    Your best bet would be to introduce straight...

    I would like to re-say what fish-stix said. It is dependent upon the distance that you are moving the hive. If it is a short distance, place something, more like a branch than a twig... something...
  16. Re: Strange cell structure - can anyone expalin this?

    That is cross-comb. It is simply connecting that frame to the nearest thing... Are your frames with foundations spaced, or pushed all of the way together?

    Re: Ants!!!!

    Not knowing what your hive stand setup is this may not apply.

    For those that have 4x4 legs or smaller you can take a coffee can and put under each leg. Place liquid into cans to form moat.

    Re: Wiring in foundation?

    Blowouts refer to the consequences of spinning the wax in the extractor at too high of a speed for the support structure of the frame. The wax 'blows out' of the frame.

    The best time to look for mites is when you accidentally open up brood via hive manipulation. For instance, sometimes drone comb will be attached to a nearby object. When you remove the frame you...
